My Dumb Luck Quilt

This is my newest quilt project. This is a memory quilt for my son's Preschool Director that is leaving for South Dakota at the end of month. The white blocks each of the kids and staff drew on. I hadn't thought it all the way through so I was telling my friend the one that got me into quilting what my plan was. I was going to sew 4 white blocks to form rows and then seperate each row with a color strip. And the next thing I know were at her mom's and they were designing a quilt top and the next thing I know were cutting blocks and sewing a quilt top! It turned out MUCH better than my original thought and I'm so happy with it. I used scrap fabric that I had from my sewing days and the colors came together so well and even though I didn't have enough fabric we got creative and it turned out beautifully! My Grandma would call it Dumb Luck when things just happen...so this quilt is named Dumb Luck!
